  • News NieR Automata Lets You Buy Trophies with In-Game Cash

    Platinum standard

    With the game already readily available in Japan, some of NieR Automata's secrets are starting to trickle online.

  • Weirdness Of Course Mark Cerny Platinumed PS4 Launch Title Knack

    Someone had to

    Mark Cerny is a busy man, but it seems that he still finds time to play the odd game.

  • News DriveClub's Going to Get Even More PS4 Trophies


    DriveClub currently has 122 Trophies, which means that it's one gong short of being the most fruitful PlayStation 4 release for hunters of polished virtual pots.

  • News You'll Probably Never, Ever Earn These PS4 Trophies

    Don't worry, neither will we

    A bit like that Taylor Swift song featuring a chorus of gregarious goats, there are some PlayStation 4 Trophies that, to put things mildly, are trouble, trouble, trouble.

  • Guide Watch Dogs PS4 Trophy Guide & Road Map

    Hack your very own Platinum pot

    Watch Dogs is easily the biggest PlayStation 4 release of the year so far.

Following a spate of delays, the release is available now – and

  • Guide How to Save the Humans and Stave Off the Keepers in Resogun on PS4

    Tips 'n' tricks

    It’s fair to say that Resogun has left our lives in complete and utter tatters. We’ve been unable to eat, sleep, or even communicate properly in the wake of our November Game of the Month winner, and who can blame us? Housemarque’s gorgeous shmup is an outstanding release – and it’s a free one to boot. However, if you...

  • News You Don't Have As Many PSN Trophies As This Guy

    Hakoom hits Level 100

    Trophies are a curious part of the PlayStation experience. As much as we enjoy the thrill of unlocking a brand new trinket, they can sometimes feel a little bit like hard work.

  • News Grand Theft Auto 5's Trophies Don't Look Especially Easy

    Time killer

    You’re going to need to set aside a few hundred hours to earn the Platinum Trophy in Grand Theft Auto V, as the trinkets in Rockstar Games’ latest adventure look anything but easy.

  • Talking Point Should All PSN Games Include a Platinum Trophy?

    Bright pots

    “Does it have a Platinum Trophy?” is probably the most asked question on the PlayStation Blog.

We’re sure that developers would rather discuss the mechanics...

  • News PlayStation's Bid for Greatness Campaign Tarnished by Cheaters

    Hackers abuse system

    This is why we can’t have nice things. Sony’s clever Bid for Greatness campaign was accompanied by an appropriately positive response earlier this week.

  • News Count Up Those Gold Trophies, You're Going to Need Them

Well, Sony hopes to answer that question with...

    Bros before foes

    God of War: Ascension has manufactured a bit of a backlash in some circles for the name of one of its Trophies.

After a particularly brutal fighting sequence,...

  • Guide How to Beat the 'Trial of Archimedes' in God of War: Ascension

    Throwing down the gauntlet

    God of War: Ascension is one of the more manageable entries in Sony’s savage Spartan series, but it does have one particular difficulty spike.

    It's a hard life

    Committing your life to collecting digital trinkets can be a real chore.

  • News Medal of Honor: Warfighter Trophies Failing to Unlock

  • News Borderlands 2 DLC Explores Captain Scarlett's Booty

    What about the Mysterons?

    Borderlands 2’s first expansion pack will be entitled ‘Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty’, according to an updated Trophy list.
